I'm about to send mine back. Will be under warranty they said. I heard of quite a few people who had their board back and it works very good after.

RE: OW Owners: Injury Survey
Hi. I have tried to put together a small survey for people that have experienced nosedives to better understand the conditions that are leading to them. It might help new riders (like me) to assess the risks riding this thing and to work out what are the common factors for people that have had this happen to them. Please take the survey if you have had a nosedive experience (if you havn't already done so - I also posted on F-book) . You can fill in the form multiple times for multiple nosedives.
The survey results are also public, anyone is welcome to have a look here:
RE: OW Owners: Injury Survey
@Glyph Absolutely, the interpretation is totally up to the viewer. With statistics the conclusions are never straight forward and need some thinking about, feel free to list all your caveats, no offence taken :).
Questions like the rider weight or the riding mode are there to find out if perhaps a less likely answer has the most hits, for example, wouldn't it be interesting if ONLY very heavy riders have ND, or ONLY Delirium mode or so.
But even then the data can give some interesting clues and I already found some surprises that I did not expect, for example:
- Majority of N-Dives are at 0-15 mph. This is a surprise, as I thought its mainly the high speeders that have this.
- Most people don't feel pushback.
- Most N-Dives are with an XR (could it be the XR is now the most sold board..and simply more abundant? I don't know but would not have thought so as its more expensive, AND i thought less prone to ND because of more power to the motor)
- Most people hurt themselves. I would have thought that its possible to outrun it quite often, esp at lower speeds
RE: XR constantly losing app connection?
Same issue here like everyone: Brand new XR, hardware 4208, cannot keep BT connection. Only works when the phone is right next to the board. The effect : Cannot track rides, cannot get battery warning, cannot easily change ride modes... its pretty annoying for such a expensive machine!
Must be hardware related cos it works for when I hold the phone very close, so the radio signal is not transmitted effectively. Could be poor antenna, or a bad Bluetooth chip. In any case: Doesn't look like its easy/economical to fix (in the production line), since new boards still have this problem. Maybe the main controller boards all have this issue and they got thousands of them produced already.
RE: Runaway OneWheel - Critical Problem
Interesting, so, normally when the OW is on and you try to move the wheel its very hard to roll and it would never roll down a hill without you on it, but you are saying after a nosedive (with the OW still on) this motor brake is disengaged? Or has the OW shut off?
The only thing I can think off is that they designed it like this because after a high speed Nosedive , if the wheel locked up you would then always eat it, but with the wheel moving freely you can maybe stay on it for a while longer to decelerate (especially with Fangs) , or even stay on until coming to a stop
